Why this book?
The Multilateral Instrument is changing the landscape of international tax law. It is modifying over 1,200 tax treaties with a view to coordinating the implementation of international tax rules to avoid base erosion and profit shifting (BEPS) and reducing the negative effects of harmful tax competition among states. Signatory countries can incorporate the rules from the OECD BEPS Project into their tax treaty network. These rules encompass hybrid mismatch arrangements, the abuse of treaties and the artificial avoidance of permanent establishment status and rules for improving dispute resolution mechanisms, including mandatory binding arbitration.
A Multilateral Instrument for Updating the Tax Treaty Network provides a systematic analysis of the Multilateral Instrument from a public international law and tax perspective. You’ll learn how the Multilateral Instrument works, how it impacts tax treaties and the extent to which parties and signatories have committed to implementing the uniform tax treaty-related BEPS measures through this instrument.
You’ll find this book to be a valuable resource, whether you’re an academic, tax professional, international organization official, government official or tax judge.
